Touring exhibition started in Belgrade – European Cultural Lifestyle in Ceramics

The Museum of Applied Art in Belgrade (Serbia) hosted the touring exhibition The European Cultural Lifestyle in Ceramics – from Baroque until Today in the first place.

During the exhibition, between May 19 and June 27, the audience had an opportunity to express their impressions through messages posted on a specially designed panel.
The work on this international exhibition and project is valuable primarily as an experience that made it possible to establish relations, exchange knowledge and ideas among various European curatorial and museum practices. Furthermore, the international teamwork who prepared the exhibition has enabled a critical evaluation of usual museum practices to achieve the best possible results. The insight into different methods of display and museum work, various approaches and institutional structures have opened up new horizons. This will have a positive effect on future curatorial work at the Museum of Applied Art in Belgrade.

During the exhibition in Belgrade, the team of curators of the Museum of Applied Art – Ljiljana Miletić Abramović, Museum Advisor and Director; Biljana Vukotić, Senior Curator; Bojana Popović, Museum Advisor; Biljana Crvenković, Curator; and Jelena Popović, Curator – organized guided tours for visitors. The curators involved in the project also organized workshops for children in collaboration with the Education Department of the Museum of Applied Art. The Serbian ceramic artist Jelena Miletić also took part in workshops for children.

The Museum of Applied Art had the honour of being the first host of the touring exhibition. Along with the Faenza Museum, eight European museums were involved in its organisation: Porzellanikon in Selb (Germany), González Martí National Museum of Ceramics and Sumptuary Arts in Valencia (Spain), National Museum in Ljubljana (Slovenia), Estonian Museum of Ceramics and Porcelain in Tallinn (Estonia), Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague (Czech Republic), Porcelain Museum in Riga (Latvia), Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent (United Kingdom), and the Museum of Applied Art in Belgrade (Serbia).

After the exhibition, the most interesting messages were selected and sent to Porzellanikon in Selb (Germany), where the exhibition was opened after Belgrade (Serbia). Thus, the audience in Germany can read the messages from Belgrade.

All in all, the exhibition is hosted at five museums during the next two years: Museum of Applied Art in Belgarde, Porzellanikon in Selb, National Museum of Ceramics and Sumptuary Arts in Valencia, International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza, Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent, and Estonian Museum of Ceramics and Porcelain in Tallinn.
